RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Do you sing in a choir, dance at a studio, or perform on the stage? Organizers of the 25th Annual Mission Inn Hotel & Spa Festival of Lights are seeking local and regional entertainment to join in the festivities, which kick off Nov. 25 and continue through Jan. 6, 2018.

The Festival of Lights is a family-friendly celebration that attracts nearly 500,000 people during the six-week season. It is Riverside’s signature festival and has earned a reputation across Southern California as a wonderful place to celebrate the winter holidays.

One of the highlights is the opportunity for local and regional community performing arts, music and dance groups to participate in the festivities. School choirs, ballet folkloricos, instrumentalists, reader’s theater groups, carolers, dancers and more have been featured during the past 24 years of the Festival.

The event also includes a line-up of professional entertainment with such styles as classic rock, country, folk, jazz and big band. The entertainment is another great reason to enjoy a spectacular exhibition of more than 5 million lights on the Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, as well as attractions, holiday food and gift items.

If you have a music, dance, or cheer group, more information about performing and an application can be found online at www.RiversideFestivalofLights.com. For more information contact organizers at specialevents@riversideca.gov.
